Back-to-School Timeshare Vacation – 4 Top Places for Art and Architecture

Who says learning can’t be fun? Plan a timeshare rental vacation and let the kids learn about art and architecture up close and personal. Here are 4 top destinations that can become “back-to-school” classrooms, as suggested by Rueters:

1. Paris, France. It may seem obvious, but there's a reason why Paris always ends up on top of most art-lovers' lists. Start with one of the largest and most well-known museums in the world, the Louvre (Musee du Louvre). This museum displays an estimated 380,000 objects and 35,000 works of art including Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa.

And the Louvre Palace itself (Palais du Louvre – see top photo) is one of the most famous architectural works of art in Paris. Another building famous for its architectural design is one of the most famous gothic cathedrals in the world, Notre Dame.

Stay in a Paris timeshare rental starting at just $129/night.

2. Florence, Italy. Known as the "cradle of the Renaissance," Florence is overflowing with beautiful art and architecture. From palaces to monuments to cathedrals, the city itself is a giant museum of master architectural work. The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore (Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower), also known as the Duomo, is Florence’s most famous church (see photo).

For art be sure to visit Galleria dell' Accademia (Academy Gallery), the home of Michelangelo's David. 

Tuscany timeshare rentals start at just $171/night.

3. Vatican City, Rome. St. Peter's Square is an architectural masterpiece designed by Gian Bernini in the seventeenth century, but it's the Vatican museums and churches that are the stars. These museums hold an immense collection of sculptures, paintings and artifacts that have been collected by the Roman Catholic Church for centuries. This includes some of history's most renowned works of art, such as Michelangelo's painted ceiling at the Sistine Chapel.

And don't forget, just outside the Vatican walls sits Rome, which could stand alone as an art lover's delight with its museums and Roman architecture.

You can stay in a Rome timeshare rental for just $139/night.

8. Los Angeles, CA. Not all fascinating art and architecture is centuries old. As one of the most eclectic cities in the United States, Los Angeles is a giant melting pot of modern art and architecture that is just waiting to be explored.

Architect Renzo Piano is currently spearheading a 3-phase renovation of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in West Hollywood. Visit Chris Burden's iconic Urban Light display (see photo) at LACMA , or travel downtown to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), where artists such as Banksy and Tim Burton have shown their work.

Southern California timeshare rentals start as low as $86/night.
